NAME

       saslfinger - A utility to collect SMTP AUTH relevant configuration for Postfix

SYNOPSIS

       saslfinger [-chs]

DESCRIPTION

       saslfinger is a utility to collect SMTP AUTH relevant configuration for Postfix. Depending
       on how you run it, it will search for information on server-side or client-side SMTP  AUTH
       configuration settings in Postfix and Cyrus SASL.

OPTIONS

       -c     If  you run saslfinger with the option -c it will collect data required for client-
              side SMTP AUTH. Client-side SMTP AUTH is when Postfix smtp daemon uses SMTP AUTH to
              authenticate itself with a remote mail server that offers SMTP AUTH.

              saslfinger will try to telnet to all hosts listed in smtp_sasl_password_maps, if it
              may read smtp_sasl_password_maps

              The telnet test verifies your host is able to reach the remote  servers  and  shows
              what  AUTH  mechanisms they offer - in some cases this is required to debug client-
              side SMTP AUTH.

              Important: By default smtp_sasl_password_maps must  be  read-only  to  root,  since
              these  maps  contain  the  usernames  and  passwords  to  authenticate.  If you run
              saslfinger as root access will be no problem, but saslfinger will fail if you  lack
              the permissions to access smtp_sasl_password_maps.

              If you want to run the telnet test, but don't want to run saslfinger as root change
              permissions of smtp_sasl_password_maps so that  the  user  running  saslfinger  may
              access smtp_sasl_password_maps while you debug.

              *note: You don't need to worry about saslfinger doing anything with the username or
              password  stored  next  to  the  remote  hosts  in  your   smtp_sasl_password_maps;
              saslfinger completely ignores these informations!

       -h     If  you  run saslfinger with the option -h it will print a little help message that
              tells you about the options you can use.

       -s     If you run saslfinger with the option -s it will collect data required for  server-
              side SMTP AUTH. Server-side SMTP AUTH is when Postfix smtpd daemon offers SMTP AUTH
              to mail clients.
